  • Wally (Pop) was my grandfather. What I would give to spend a day with you now Granddad, with all the questions which maturity brings. You lived in such exciting but challenging times as NZ was emerging as a nation; I have such fond memories of the times we had together and think of you and Gran Nairn frequently.
